Dedication of the Incorporation Palm
On Tuesday, July 28th, 2009 at 1:00 PM, four Miamians will come together at the Incorporation Palm site to become the city's first "reincorporators."
They will hear Dr. Paul George describe how the City of Miami was incorporated at that very location 113 years earlier.
Then, Miami artist Xavier Cortada will give them four flags to install at the base of the Royal Palm tree, each flag depicting a different number of the city's incorporation year: 1, 8, 9, 6.
- 1: Theresa Gutierrez, student
- 8: Thelma Gibson, community leader
- 9: Hon. Ursula Ungaro, federal judge
- 6: Carl Juste, photojournalist
Each will then touch the palm tree with the palm of their hand and recommit themselves to growing the City of Miami.
